Helio Center is the first complex multi-service Recreation Center in Da Nang city. It has a total construction area of 35,000m2. Designed by the White Hutchinson Leisure and Learning Group from the USA, the new centre provides a wide range of exciting entertainment activities to meet the recreational demands of both locals and visitors.
In particular, the complex’s Helio Kids area for children features 42 entertainment areas with numerous indoor and outdoor activities.
The Marble Mountains or Non Nuoc are actually five granite peaks. They are a great half day trip from Danang or as a stopover on the way to Hoi An. There are caves to explore, temples and lots of stairs.
The drinks and trinket sellers can get a little annoying but the climb up to the top is worth it and there are plenty of photo opportunities.
My Son was an imperial city during the Cham dynasty, between the 4th and 12th centuries. My Son Sanctuary is a large complex of religious relics that comprises more than 70 architectural works.
They include temples and towers that connect to each other with complicated red brick designs.
The main component of the Cham architectural design is the tower, built to reflect the divinity of the king.
There are 30 kms of beaches stretching from Danang all the way down to Hoian and even further south. As you would expect, the beaches further from the city are best, particularly China Beach near the Marble Mountain area.
All of the beaches are rarely crowded and most of them have some form of seating and umbrellas for rent.
Ba Na has recently undergone a few changes, notably a world record setting cable car, the world’s highest and longest non stop cable car.
The Museum’s first building was opened in 1919, but many Cham sculptures collected in Da Nang, Quang Nam and elsewhere were brought to the site over the preceding twenty years.
The collection was begun by French archaelogists and experts from L’École Francaise d’Extrême Orient (EFEO). Some artefacts were sent to Paris and others to the Ha Noi and Sai Gon (now Ho Chi Minh City) museums, but many typical objects were left in Tourane (now Da Nang).
